We are asking for Mosslands old boys to come forward as part of a special campaign.
We want “inspirational” old boys to get in touch to share their stories with current pupils.
Assistant headteacher Gareth Evans has already been in contact with a selection of ex-students, including policemen, soldiers and musicians.
Some of our former pupils include Liverpool FC player Jay Spearing and celebrity chef Simon Rimmer, and Mr Evans is looking forward to kick-starting the project.
He said: “Some of our famous success stories have visited the school for tours and to speak to the pupils.
“Reverend Father Christopher Matthews, Shrewsbury Cathedral Sub Dean, spent an afternoon at the school and met some of the staff that taught him. He was impressed by how the school has developed and how our facilities have expanded.
“He also visited one of our Religious Education lessons to speak to our pupils, and has said he would be happy to come back to help further with the campaign.
“We want to celebrate what our old boys have achieved and show something that our current pupils can aim towards. As well as the obvious stars of The Mosslands, such as Liverpool FC midfielder Jay Spearing, celebrity chef Simon Rimmer and Welsh professional footballer Jason Koumas, servicemen are amongst those involved in the campaign.”
Mr Evans added: “It is great to have realistic role models for the students at The Mosslands. We are extremely proud of those of our old boys who are serving the country and community.”
Talented musician Tom Taylor, who achieved a first class honours degree from the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), has also been to visit the school and is one of the old boys profiled in the inspiring students’ campaign.
Tom studied piano at RNCM and was in the RNCM big band in the first year of his studies, following his involvement in the The Mosslands School’s ‘swing band’.
Creative Arts Music teacher Paul Jackson said: “Tom came in to a music lesson to advise one of our very talented year 11 GCSE students.
"He is an asset to The Mosslands School and it is fantastic that through this campaign students such as Tom can go on to inspire the pupils of today.
“This campaign will hopefully make the boys realise the difference they can make and if we can reach just a handful of our pupils it will be worth it.
"As well as inspiring the next generation we want the old boys to feel a part of the school and see how it is today.”
We are asking for any old boys who would like to be part of the campaign to get in touch on 0151 638 8131
